美国各个州中国驾照使用情况

最近不少人在学车,多半也是为了以后方便去美国考驾照方便。但是每个州的政策都不一样。今天看到这篇文章。。。拷过来方便一下大家。准确性概不负责。。。个别几个州求知情者补充。

======================我是华丽丽的分割线========================

Alabama

Alaska 
————————————————————————— 
 

You may legally drive in Arizona using a valid driver license from another 
country. An International Driving License or is not required, but is 
recommended since can be printed in English, and can be used in conjunction with the driver license from the other country. If an International Driving 
License or Permit is used alone, it must be issued by a country other than the United States. Vehicle companies may have additional requirements. 

However, Arizona requires that you obtain an Arizona driver license 
(and vehicle registration) immediately if any one of the following applies. If you: 

Work in Arizona (other than for seasonal agricultural work) -or- 
Are registered to vote in Arizona -or- 
Place children in school without paying the tuition rate of a nonresident 
-or- 

Have a business that has an office in Arizona, and that bases and operates 
vehicles in this state -or- 
Obtain a state license or pay school tuition fees at the same rate as an 
Arizona resident -or- 
Have a business that operates vehicles to transport goods or passengers 
within Arizona -or- 
Remain in Arizona for a total of 7 months or more during any calendar year, 
regardless of your permanent residence. 
Out-of-state students enrolled with 7 or more semester hours are not 
considered Arizona residents, regardless of employment. 

概括起来就是中国驾照可以临时用,有英文版最好了,长期使用最好还是考本地驾照, 
有无中国驾照对在这边的考试没有影响,这边的考试异常简单…

DPSK: 
加州 
中国驾照可以在考完笔试以后当场办成临时驾照,可以用半年还是3个月来着的,然后到 
期 
了可以再续一下,总归可以用1年反正。满好用的。。。 

hardier: 
California不知道,只是DMV效率奇低无比,俺发现之前的驾照快expire了赶快申请了 
transfer,结果两个多月了还没拿到正式驾照= = 
对了加州驾照的有效期是你在美国合法身份结束之前,如果读书就是在I20上的时间好像

Colorado 

platas: 
Colorado承认,有效期是半年 

MNG: 
Colorado我知道的版本和上面不太一样 
国内驾照临时可以用一个月,但租车什么的都贵些,而且科州驾照是当ID用的,即使用 
国 
际驾照换也会被收回(我只听说过承认德国驾照,瑞典,马来西亚和国内都不承认)。 
刚问了一下原因,科州在denver metro area的几个主要地区关于机动车的很多规定都和 
本 
州其他地方不太一样,比如说尾气排放检测的规章之类,原因不明。 

VLSICAD: 
我说下colorado好了。这边中国驾照自首次入境日起可以使用一年,自己开车买车都没 
有问题,只是买保险的时候要贵50刀,拿到permit的之后,可以免费把保险信息更新一下 
;可以带着只有permit的人开,自己坐副驾驶。基本上来讲,一年之内是可以完全替代正 
式驾照的。另外,permit可以随便考,即使还没有ssn,只要开一份没有ssn的证明就可以了 
。笔试拿permit,路考拿正式驾照。路考在拿到permit的时候当场就可以预约,据说也是可 
以免费无限考,不过不收钱,只是太多次不过,DMV会延长你每次预约之间的间隔。以上是我 
知道的情况。

Connecticut 

康州可以用,驾照上有英文能让警察看懂就可以,没英文弄个公正让警察看懂也可以 
原文: 
* Visitors from another country are permitted to use their valid 
out-of-country license here in Connecticut for a period of one year with an 
International Driver Permit obtained from your home country. 
* Full time students, on a student visa, maintaining an out-of-country 
residency do not have to obtain a Connecticut license as long as full-time 
student status is in effect and are permitted to use their valid 
out-of-country 
license here in Connecticut with an International Driver Permit obtained 
from your home country. 

An International Driver Permit (IDP) is essentially an English translation 
of a foreign language drivers license issued by a foreign country. These permits 
can only be obtained in the country which issued the actual license. 
An International Driver Permit is not considered a valid license. It must 
accompany the valid foreign license. The reason to have an IDP is to ensure 
that your foreign language license will be comprehensible and therefore 
acceptable to all officials who may ask to see your driver’s license. The 
DMV may not accept a foreign language license as a license unless it is 
accompanied 

—————————————————————————- 
Delaware 

在Delaware官方说法是持有其他国家驾照可以在60天内可以开车上路,60天后必须申请De 
laware驾照。无论有没有其他国家驾照,申请Delaware驾照都需要进行交规和路考两部分 
考试。交规考试直接去DMV排队即可,拍照测视力之后在电脑上做30题选择题,对24道即可 
通过。没有通过一周后可以再考。 
通过交规考之后DMV发一个Learner’s Permit,持有这个Permit可以在有正式驾照的人的陪 
同下开车,但是车内只能载那个有正式驾照的陪同的人。Permit有效期一个月,一个月过 
期前可以去DMV再延长一个月,只能延一次。 
拿到Permit一周后可以参加路考,参加路考需要早上起很早然后直接去DMV排队。路考包括 
场地上的进库平趴还有街上开一圈。路考通过后当天可以领驾照,没有通过可以一周后再 
考。现在有一个DMV在实验电话预约路考,预计未来会在全州推广。

Washington D.C

Florida 

hardier: 
Florida有国内驾照可以不用酒精考试(20-30刀+网上听课时间),直接考笔考,笔考之 
后就拿permit,可以在有驾照同学的陪同下上路。当然也可以笔考路考一起,就直接拿正 
式驾照了。 

chentia: 
Florida需要中国的驾照原件,刚开始我拿着公正书过去的,不承认。。。另外,每年需 
要续一次,很贵 

—————————————————————————– 

Georgia 

Georgia可以直接拿permit,但我自己没试过。 
但是Georgia用国外驾照拿permit的话,国外驾照会被拿走。这个经历来自我实验室德国

Illinois 

philosze: 
IL的:应该是可以直接用的。有效期不知道 
Can foreign nationals who are temporarily in the U.S. drive on their licenses 
from their home country? 
Yes. This new law does not change the fact that a foreign national who is temp 
orarily residing in Illinois may continue to drive on a valid driver’s license 
from his/her home country. 

kangkangtu: 
Illinois 可用,最好有英文注释。 
http://www.cyberdriveillinois.com/departments/drivers/drivers_license/dlfaq.html 

I will be working in/moving to Illinois. How do I obtain a driver’s license? 

Drivers moving to Illinois may use their valid driver’s license from their home 
state or country for 90 days. You may obtain an Illinois driver’s license or 
identification card only if you are becoming a legal resident of Illinois. If 
you have a valid driver’s license from another state or country, you may use it 
to drive in Illinois throughout your stay (if you do not plan to become a 
permanent resident of this state). Illinois does not recognize the 
international driver’s license. 

看这个注释,如果不申请绿卡,想用多久就能用多久。

Indiana 

Indiana: 翻译的国内驾照可以用一年,不过好像要去BMV再办个证明什么的。但有了国 
内驾照,拿了permit之后就可以直接路考,否则要等3个月。 听同学说那国内驾照买车保 
险会贵一些。 
—————————————————————————– 

Iowa 

貌似Iowa最好了,可以使用中国驾照。。。只是很少有人来Iowa念书。。。 

Iowa Driver’s Manual上面说: 

You do not need an Iowa driver’s license if you: 
are driving a military motor vehicle while on duty with the U.S.  
med Forces; 
are driving farm equipment between the home farm and any nearby (no 
t more than two miles) farmland or farm operation; or 
are a student or visitor and have a current license from your home 
state or country.
